Leo Express’s black and yellow trains will be drive to Karviná again. In the direction of Prague, there will be two connections from Karviná on weekdays on Saturdays at 04:08 and 06:08. The second of these connections will be extended to Karviná on Sunday, the carrier said, adding that afternoon connections will be extended in the opposite direction from Prague. In total, Leo Express operates nine connections a day between Prague and the North Moravian region.
By extending the trains to 60,000, Karviný expects the monthly passenger tariff by 2,500, said company spokeswoman Andrea Hofmanová. The afternoon connections from Prague’s main railway station to Karviná will depart at 16:09 and 18:29 and arrive at Karviná at 19:50 and 22:05.
Next stop – Dětmarovice
In addition to Karviná, black trains will also be built at the Dětmarovice stop. According to Hofmanová, the carrier approached this solution because a passenger train of Czech Railways passes through the line before the line, due to which the express train to Prague on the line has to slow down, thus creating space for stopping in Dětmarovice as well.
Extensions of rides on the existing route are not according to the online logbook iDnes.cz the only change planned by the carrier. From the next timetable, which begins in December, he asked for a change of route on one train towards the Old Town near Uherské hradiště. All black trains are to stop in Přerov.
However, these changes must first be approved by the Railway Infrastructure Administration, which allocates transport capacity in the Czech Republic and which compiles timetables. It deals with Leo Express’s proposal, but it is already clear, according to spokesman Jakub Ptačinský, that it will not be easy to meet all the requirements made by the private carrier for capacity reasons.
